who am I (a roller coaster ride) #wattys2016
When an encounter, a contest and a way to change my life presented itself, I was too hesitant to take the leap, but I did and it changed me.
However, they see me finally getting back on my feet, and they do anything to send me to my knees again.
It was dark and blurry, and I felt empty. I couldn't reach out out my hand and clear my vision. I lay lifeless - hearing noises everywhere. A girl shouting for help and asking for someone's care. I heard my name, the name he used to call so beautifully, with a voice that could easily make you smile. As I felt waterfalls stream down my chubby cheeks at the image of his face, I recalled the last words I uttered that day.
"Is this the end then?" He questioned, his orbs wet with trembling tears.
"No, I promise I'll come back - someday."
"You sure you don't want some company, I'm good with a comfy backseat in your suitcase If you're willing to sacrifice your clothes. I'm sure you will, girls don't need much clothes anyway."the corners of his mouth were showing the hint of the smile I loved so much.
"Forever clueless, now aren't we?" With difficulty, I wore the best smile I could muster because I needed to leave them with something they could hold onto.
"You don't have to go, you know."
"I know" and with that, I left and never looked back because that is how life is - changing. So if I just stay where I am, knowing day after day that this how my life has to play out, and not doing anything about it, I'm going against life. I'm not moving, not changing and letting an emotion I created myself, control what I do!
My life began with a crash, locking my memories with a key only I can unlock. For a while, it seemed like I was rooted to my spot again, helpless and tired of being brave. But a hope appeared and I clung to it and now, it's feels like I can succeed.
I'm Sally James and I'll tell you how I got here.
